How can I free internal memory on my Galaxy Note?

dirghayuoza June 5, 2013

After I updated my Galaxy Note 1 to Jelly Bean, the internal memory is more occupied, and I don’t have the room for apps and can’t move some apps to the SD card. This means I can’t update applications. What’s the solution? Every message comes that my storage is low and I have to dlete apps I don’t like.

    this is the easiest way i used, i just installed cleanmaster from google play it can clean up cache and residual files (after you uninstaled your apps). i'm using it with my android ICS gadget, an it work like a charms

    PS: check the privacy permission tough, idk why it needed contact information from my gadgets

    How to root Galaxy Note with Jelly Bean 4.1.2 (links to XDA-Developers within the guide):

    Link2SD to move apps to your SD card (if you set it up right, apps that won't move to your SD card using APPS 2SD would be possible):

    Super APPS2SD (updated and better version to APPS2SD):

    The choice is yours on whether to use Link2SD or APPS2SD. Link2SD allows the moving of apps, APPS2SD allows for all apps to install to your SD. Read everything carefully and everything should work out fine. Remember, if it doesn't work the first time, try again. I personally have had issues to where I had to try these steps up to 5 different times before it actually worked. It can be scary, but once you realize that rooting isn't any more dangerous than updating your phone (yes, many people have actually bricked their device from using legitimate updating methods including over-the-air updates), and that it is fairly easy to do, the next device that you wish to root would be quick and easy. Everything that you do to your phone can be undone, meaning you can un-root your phone and gain your warranty back if necessary. Good luck.

    Make sure you back up your device before rooting it

    You're going to have to root your phone that will allow you to delete apps that came with the phone that take up space and also allow you to move applications that you previously weren't able to , to the sd card. But make sure you are careful with what default apps you delete because some are essential to make the phone run correctly and also don't put system/theme type apps on the sd card they won't run correctly.

    You need to find the appropriate Development section for your phone on XDA to find instructions for rooting and such. Make sure you find the right model number for your carrier. I have a Verizon based Note 2 so my section is They make it easy to search for your device though some models are carrier specific so make sure to find the right one. Then you can root the phone and do lots of things to make it work the way you need. You might even find a custom ROM that cuts a lot of the Samsung specific stuff you might not need and save even more space. So go read and learn and then when you are ready start rooting and modding your phone the way you need it. Enjoy.

    The only solution i see is to root your phone and then delete unwanted apps, even the preinstalled ones.

    Unfortunately, this is how Google decided to have Android; apps will only install onto the internal storage. The only way to correct this is by rooting your phone, partitioning your external SD card to have 2 primary partitions, then use APPS2SD to move apps and GL2SD to move the game data for most games over to the SD card. This is a guide for the LG L9, but most of the information (and there are links for other guides) that will help you with what you wish. Search XDA-Developers on how to root your phone.
